So, I have definitely been getting conflicting infor regarding using frozen MS sperm for IVF/PGD.. not IUI. For me personally, I wasnt willing to go to Mexico to have the whole procedure done. BUT, I recently was told that they would now freeze and ship sperm to your clinic. So, Dh would go, leave sample, and it would then be sorted, frozen and shipped to your clinic in the US.
So, I get in contact with Microsort in the US- They tell me that they cant give me an answer and will be in touch in 2 weeks with a more definitive answer. Was told it was a US customs issue. Hmmm kind of not holding my breath from what I have heard.
Next, get in touch with Microsort in Guadalaraja - They tell me YES, it can be done. When I question a bit more, a bit more prying and digging, I get told that Microsort cant ship sample BUT they can ship from a different address. So possibly, the affiliated lab and not Microsort. I really dont know.
Next attempt, get in touch with MS in Mexico City- Flat out NO response from them. Although it did say "at this moment, we are not allowed"
I think something is in the works regarding this.. plus I did ask about shipping the sample to the US about 6 months ago and I always was told NO. And, now there seems to be a slight opening in the door. Who knows though.
I think that the Guadalararja location found a loophole and possibly be able to get around the restrictions but I dont know!!
Also.. when I contacted Dr. Potters office regarding this - whoa.. very very abrupt about it! It was basically they dont want anything to do with MS- and if one pursues it, its completely on your end- and Dr. Potter is not a fan of it at all. Are they disconnecting themselves from MS b/c of legal issues/FDA . Possibly
Well, if anyone has any info please let me know :)
